Village returns to in-person meetings on Tuesday

HOLLEY – The Village of Holley will have its election on Sept. 15, about three months later than was planned.

The village election is usually the third Tuesday in June. The election was pushed back by the governor due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Village election petitions can be picked up in the Village Office and must be turned in between July 27-30. All petitions must be signed by 70 percent of the statutory minimum. In Holley, that minimum is 35 signatures.

The mayor’s positions and two trustees are up for election.

The village also is returning to in-person meetings. Holley has been meeting through Zoom video conferencing since April.

The state has increased the meeting size maximum from 10 people to 25 and now to 50, as long as social distancing guidelines are followed.

Holley village officials announced on Thursday the next Village Board meeting on Tuesday will be back at the Village Office, 72 Public Square. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

“There will be limited number of attendees allowed due to the overall occupancy of our meeting room being reduced to maintain proper social distancing,” the village announced on its Facebook page. “Attendees will need to wear a face covering.”
